neighborhood She works at a topless bar She keeps telling herself that she is a waitress, not a stripper The tips are good But it s only with sharing the rent with her room mate that she is able to get by Except her room mate ran off Then, when she came back, she had a two month old baby Then she took off again, leaving the baby behind It s with all of this on her shoulders on the night when she first met Alexei She could have handled the situation But he stepped in and helped her out She had never laid eyes on him before She didn t know he was a football player He could have been a murderer for all she knew But somehow she knew that she could trust him She and baby Elle needed someone that night and he was there What she didn t know was that meeting Alexei that night was going to forever change her life.Alexei has been told by his manager to stay out of trouble He just signed a new contract with the Chicago Hawks He had just left a meeting when he first saw Ryleigh outside of the bar where she worked Someone was hassling her and he stepped in She was beautiful and stubborn and didn t want his help which made him all the determined to help her Only he realized soon enough that there was a lot going on than just her own needs There was a baby as well She clearly was not completely comfortable with the baby He, with all of his sisters kids, had plenty of experience with babies How does this woman I barely know own me already I wonder if she feels the same way I do Does she feel this thing between us The force field of chemistry zapping around us is intense It makes me wonder if this could be something real, and not just something physical Ryleigh feels a little bit like the star of the movie, Pretty Woman Alexei is clearly rich and can have anyone he wants She s a waitress with a baby that isn t hers But try as she might, she can t seem to separate herself from him He s like a freaking baby whisperer What am I going to do when it s time to leave this fairy tale and return to the real world He calms me centers me, even He makes me think that maybe, just maybe I can do this This was so adorable Ryleigh was nothing like the clingers that usually chase professional athletes She didn t want his money But she needed his help It all happens pretty fast but feelings develop Alexei doesn t like being apart from Ryleigh and Ella and Ryleigh doesn t want to burden Alexei These two were just so perfect together and Alexei with a baby melted me into a puddle of goo I mean, a huge football player snuggling a tiny little baby girl swoon This is a quick read with an awesome epilogue You will definitely walk away from this with a big smile I m so glad I had the chance to read it.For about this book and so many , come and join me at Carol s Crazy

babies and is an amazing lover Finding Alexei is narrated by Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon and as always, they do a great job I think Erin is one of the best narrators for voicing both the female and male characters Also, an fyi if you pick up the audio book, you get the Kendall Ryan novella Bossy Brit for free added to the end, and it s narrated by Erin Mallon and Shane West he does the best

Alex takes Ryleigh in and falls in love with her and baby Ella Win the game Get the girl Live happily ever after Told in dual POV, Finding Alexei is an absolute delight The characters are complex and although their connection happens fast, the progression of the relationship is thoroughly explored as both characters battle to overcome their fears The sweet baby truly enhances the read as Ryleigh struggles to find a balance between becoming an independent woman and accepting support from those around her The pacing of the read is fast as the stakes are high for Alex to prove to Ryleigh that she can depend on him to take care of her and give her everything she needs What do you say baby Overall, I highly recommend Finding Alexei to anyone who enjoys a sweet and sexy contemporary romance

them fell for each other Actually I understand h s POV He was at least useful with the kid He was lusting after her from after meeting her or even before knowing her So I guess shallow is the new black.4 But what pissed me off most was the fact he went inside her work after knowing her for a day without considering how she d feel So basically seen her half naked That was utterly disrespectful and he never apologised for it He could have respected her and met her outside work but no, he had to embarrass her like that He knew he was an ass, she knew he was an ass, no one addressed this further Da fuq She was fuming inside her head But no follow through Lots of loose ends regarding h s inner monologue Lots.5 too much tell, big fat ZERO show of h s independence She fumes in her head how she d never ask H for help Goes home and gets evicted and ends up at his place in the time span of 4 hours max Really Independent heroine my ass She was not capable of taking care of the child herself, and she could barely take care of herself She found herself in terrible situations than three times An independent woman doesn t forget to pay the heating bill when she has a baby in the midst of winter They don t find themselves evicted in the middle of the raining to be rescued by hero Dragging her feet to work at a topless bar which she claims she hates specially when she doesn t have to and knows it hurts the hero doesn t equate to independence If you re going to give me a damsel in distress with a knight give me exactly that Don t pretend she s Wonder Woman You don t turn into Wonder Woman just because that s your stripper name and just cause you have collectors edition outfit.6 Did I say the romance was forced And wasn t relatable Well the romance was forced and wasn

trouble at work, but when he sees Ryleigh, he gets a vibe that she s worth any trouble she may possibly bring.So basically in this story you have a rich athlete, Alexei, who is alpha and bossy, but is also sweet and understanding Where is that combo frowned upon Nowhere in my world I loved Alexei and spent most of this book with heart eyes for the dude.Ryleigh is a heroine who is independent and wants to keep that independence, but also melts a bit when Alexei shows how much he is willing to help out with her and Ella She is taking care of a baby who belongs to someone she didn t even know very well, and to me that is the sign of a heroine deserving of all the amazing things Alexei is willing to give.This story truly ends up being a feel good read It s a quick read, and the romance is hesitant at first, but moves pretty quickly Finding Alexei made me emotional It made me smile It made me a little hot and bothered I loved the characters I loved their story, and the ending ALL THE SWOONS All in all a great read, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a quick feel good romance, that isn t conventionally realistic, but it s so good that you won t care flag 25 likesLike see

don t think that s the kind of book it is It s a feel good book that provides an easy route to an HEA It actually reminded me of Aurora Rose Reynolds books with the instalove and protective take

actually reminded me of Aurora Rose Reynolds books with the instalove and protective take charge H So if you re a ARR fan this might work very well for you I enjoyed it for what it was, but it just simply isn t my cuppa Side note I found it really annoying that the author said the H was a linebacker a few times, but in one of the final scenes she described him being on the field during a play with his quarterback I m a football fan and I have a son that plays football, so it really bugged me that she did this Linebackers are a defensive position They would never be on the field with the quarterback from their team as the QB is an offensive position If you re writing about something you don t know just do a simple google search and find out Okay, stepping off my pedestalBrief Summary of the Storyline This is Ryleigh and Alexei s story Alexei sees Ryleigh being bothered by a customer outside her work at a topless bar, and he offers to help her out After soon realizing that she was left with her missing roommate s young baby and doesn t know what she s doing, Alexei s protective instincts kick in and he takes them home with him Ryleigh is resistant to the help, but with unpaid bills and getting evicted all while taking care of a new baby she is left with no other choice There is some sexy times, a few sweet scenes with the baby, and a big change in their livesand they get a HEA ending.POV This alternated between Ryleigh and Alexei s POV.Overall Pace of Story Good I thought it flowed well and I never skimmed I didn t realize this was so short It ended up being 200 pages in my scribed app, and I didn t notice this until I was than halfway through I usually look for books longer than 250 pages, as I m not a huge fan of shorter novella books I feel like my experience with shorter books is that the length doesn t allow for deeper connections, but that s definitely my own impression and preference Instalove Yes Definitely for fans of instalove H rating 3.5 stars Alexei This is going to make me sound like the total grump that I am but he seemed too good to be true most of the time I m sure many readers will just adore him Personally, I like some flaws in my Hs.h rating 3 stars Ryleigh She was just okay She annoyed me a bit with her pushing away, but I get that the author needed some type of conflict and she provided it Sadness level Low, no tissues

what And though she is dealing with a lot, her heart hasn t gone cold and cynical She still has a spark inside her that won t be put out.Alexei and Ryleigh s journey to their HEA is a sweet and fun

they navigated their way around and through them The pull between them is there, but it s Ella the baby who really brings them together by showing the other who they are down to their very cells The big bump in the road wasn t all that big and I m kinda meh about it in all honesty, but I really liked where they were at in the end.This is a sweet, fun and quick read that s low on drama and high on heart melting moments We get to catch up with Jane and Weston, as well as Keaton and Slate from Love Machine and even an update on Cam and Natalie from Flirting with Forever and find out what they ve been up to and that epilogue was all kinds of goodness So, if you re looking for an romance that is low on angst, then this is a must click for you Copy provided by the author via InkSlinger PR

chemistry was off the charts hot but the kicker for me in this story was the way Alex loved baby Ella This story was filled with all the love and passion we ve come to expect from a Kendall Ryan novel with all the feels as the cherry on top This was brilliant Bravo 5 stars Ratula AUDIO REVIEW Football player unexpected baby Sign me up, every time And Finding Alexei did not disappoint It was short, sweet, and adorable Alexei was a little open than I anticipated, but I adored him nonetheless and perhaps no surprise his scenes with little Ella were my favorite Seriously ovary explosion I also adored him with Ryleigh This is a really simple love story so there s not a lot of grit or drama, but there is a fair amount of emotion and I found myself swept up in it I loved Ryleigh and Alexei together, and I SUPER loved the dynamic between the little trio Full disclosure the female narrator is not one of my favorites I find her enunciation a little distracting from the story However the male narrator than made up for it and over all, I still really enjoyed this story If you re looking for something light and virtually angst free, don t pass this one by Shelly, 4 Stars flag 7

for writing sweet and easy romantic stories And she nails it on the head again with Finding Alexei.Finding Alexei is very quick and breezy read, that Kendall can easily make into , but chose not to, which is ok It didn t hurt the story in any way, but for me is what prevented me from loving this book We met Alexei Alex in Dear, Jane but if you have not read that one, do not worry He was just a secondary character and not much was revealed about him The way Alexei and Ryleigh meet, is a definitely a new one and totally not traditional.Alexei and Ryleigh have chemistry between them and you see it building the time they are spent around one another This is an area that I could easily see Kendall expanding upon and making the chemistry even believable and showing how their relationship was built on than just their chemistry But again, it doesn t deter from how Kendall played everything out.Even though Alexei and Ryleigh don t know each other and their running into one another was truly fate intervening, I felt that most of their interactions were normal and nothing felt out character for either of them I can easily see Alexei s actions reflect on as how he was raised and later actions explained by hormones and such Ryleigh definitely keeps herself level headed and tries not to read into anything too much and not truly rely on Alexei.Overall, the story played out nicely and the relationship felt naturally played out The way Kendall wrote it, although fast, worked nicely and still came across as believable Kendall once again write a sweet, sexy and enjoyable story flag 7
